Miller ’69 on Product Liability

Attorney Terrance “Terry” Miller ’69 recently published an update to the non-fiction book, “Products Liability Depositions,” a ready resource for legal doctrines across the 50 states that are often applicable in product liability cases. The book serves as a legal guide for establishing a solid case that is helpful for a variety of lawyers, featuring sample depositions from past legal battles that illustrate practical applications of the methodologies.

In his work, Miller draws upon his 35+ years of both trial and appellate experience to write this latest edition. As an attorney, he has served clients at a national level and has tried cases in 13 states, involving industries as varied as motor vehicles, industrial machinery, pharmaceuticals and consumer products. His approach and focus on ways attorneys might consider preparing diligent and focused depositions is said to be both thorough and thoughtful.

Miller, who was a political science major at HWS, is currently a partner at the law firm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP based in Columbus, Ohio.  He serves as chair of the firm’s Product Liability Practice Group and has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America® every year since 1987. He was named Best Lawyers’ 2010 Columbus, Ohio Personal Injury Litigator of the Year and Best Lawyers’ 2012 Columbus, Ohio Product Liability Litigation-Defendants Lawyer of the Year.  In addition, he has been recognized by Ohio Super Lawyers® since 2004 and was listed among the Top 50 attorneys in Columbus in 2011.  

At the Colleges, Miller was a member of the football and the basketball team. He was also on the Orange Key and served on the Athletic Advisory Council.
